A Compliance Win: GitLab Inc. Successfully Achieves ISO/IEC 27001: 2013 Certification
GitLab Inc. takes another step forward in providing enterprise security assurance at the highest international standard
— GitLab Inc. (GTLB), the provider of The DevOps Platform, today announced that it has successfully obtained ISO/IEC 27001:2013 certification issued by Schellman and Company, LLC. GitLab Inc. achieved certification upon its first attempt, demonstrating the maturity and effectiveness of its information security program.
ISO 27001 is an international standard that ensures organizations comply with best practices for information security management. It enumerates requirements for establishing, maintaining and certifying information security management systems (ISMS), including policy implementation, continuous control monitoring, evidence of effective security controls, executive oversight and more. An ISO 27001 certified ISMS enables organizations to manage the security of sensitive assets such as financial information, intellectual property, and personal identifiable information.

We believe the certification empowers GitLab Inc. users and customers to use the DevOps SaaS platform with full confidence that their data will remain secure and that the security program is designed according to the highest international operating requirements. Additionally, with this certification, our customers feel assured and confident enough to reduce extensive, time consuming, and costly assessments, which saves their time and resources.
In addition to ISO 27001, GitLab Inc. continues to invest, iterate, and diversify its security and compliance program. ISO 27001 joins a growing list of GitLab certifications including SOC 2 Type 2 and SOC 3 as well as our self-attestations, ISO 20243, CSA-Star, PCI and more.
